Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting. This week I’ve chosen the 2nd book of a duology by an author I have enjoyed in the past. And the first book, Blackbird, was so totally original and unique, that I can’t wait to see how she continues it. It was told in 2nd person, something you rarely see, and as a former English teacher, I loved the example of this type of writing. Here is the blurb from Goodreads:
In the compelling sequel to Blackbird, Anna Carey delivers a gritty and adrenaline-filled story of a girl desperate to escape her mysterious and terrifying assailants. Told in second person, this heart-pounding thriller puts the reader in front of the target.
A week ago, you woke up in Los Angeles with no memory of who you are. The only thing you knew: people are trying to kill you. You put your trust in Ben, but he betrayed you and broke your heart. Now you’ve escaped to New York City with a boy named Rafe, who says he remembers you from before. But the two of you are not safe. The same people who are after you are tailing Rafe as well. As the chase heats up, your memory starts to return, but your past cannot save you from the terrifying circumstances of your present, or the fact that one wrong move could end this game forever.
With enemies on every side, and not a reprieve in sight, Deadfall will grab readers and refuse to let go. Perfect for fans of the Maze Runner series and the Legend series.
Sounds pretty good, right? Did you read the first one yet? What did you think? If not, what do you expect from reading a book in 2nd person? This is supposed to be published in June, I’ll be hoping for maybe an e-galley if possible!
